January 22 – Saint Vincent of Saragossa

Saint Vincent of Saragossa

Holy God, Saint Vincent of Saragossa served You as a permanent deacon and gave his whole life and soul to You, even to the point of becoming a martyr.  I lift up to You the deacons of the Church and all those who are being called by God to become deacons.  Guide them as they discern how to serve the Body of Christ.  Prevent the attractions of the world and the busyness of secular jobs from interfering with their vocations.  Teach them to grow in humility.  Help their families learn from their examples and support their diaconates with trust and joy.  Saint Vincent, pray for us.  Amen.
